Current Members:Seiji - Guitar WolfU.G - Bass WolfToru - Drum Wol.

Former Members:Narita – DrumsBilly - Bass GuitaristGuitarist Seiji and bassist Billy became friends while the two were inHarajuku. The two workedacross from each other, Seiji in a used clothing store and Billy in a punk rock shop nearby. Realizingthey shared similar musical tastes, the twodecided to join together to play rock and roll. After convincing Seiji's coworkerNarita to accompany them on drums, Guitar Wolf formed in Harajuku in1987. After creating the band, each member adopted aRamones-style surname reflecting their instrument of choice: Seiji became Guitar Wolf, Billybecame Bass Wolf, and Naritabecame Drum Wolf. In time, Narita left the band, apparently to become a fortune teller, and was replaced by Toru.

In time the band would come to develop its own unique strain of punk rock music, fusing multiple genres together into whatthe band described as JetRock 'n' Roll. The term Jet Rock 'n' Roll was coined by the band to describe their musical style; aconglomeration of punk, traditional rock, heavydistortion, feedback, and screamed vocals. The name is derived from the lastname of musician Joan Jett, whom Guitar Wolf frontman Seiji considershis greatest influence. To date, the term Jet Rock isinfrequently applied to anyone other than Guitar Wolf itself. Nevertheless, the members of GuitarWolf would eventually beginto tout themselves as "The World's Greatest Jet Rock 'n' Roll Band..

In 2005, Bassist Billy/Bass Wolf, real name Hideaki Sekiguchi, suffered a fatal heart attack at the age of 38.

The band is known for songs with piercing vocals and an extremely loud style of noise-influenced punk which emphasizesheavy distortion andfeedback.
